The white trail, newly blazed for the 2013 riding season, starts with Old Dickerson Mine Road, a historic egress roadway for the mining operation responsible for removing an estimated 1 million tons of iron ore at a depth of over 1300 ft.

Old Dickerson Mine Road starts from the parking lot to the North as an old mining road that has seen heavy erosion over the years. Enjoyed mostly for its historical significance, JORBA is actively working on singletrack alternatives that follow the old pathway without disturbing it. To the South, the trail turns to singletrack following the utility line, eventually reaching the ridge line overlooking the Orange Trail, the Mine Hill lake and beach.

At just under 2 miles, this trail has big plans for the future that will extend it an additional 1/3 mile as well as reroute a number of heavily eroded sections.
